There are many places in Abdoun circle that are not worth going to. This place is one you should visit. There's a few seats outside where there's a great view of what's going on in the circle. The valet parking attendant is super friendly and quick to fetch your car as you're ready to leave. The fish, burgers and steaks... More

First of all, the food was fresh and we did enjoy it. The staff was friendly and so was the owner who stopped by and checked on us. That being said, for the price we expected more flavorful meal. Hence the 4 stars. However, if you are in Shmessani it is one of the very few tasty options (outside a... More

We used to like this restaurant a few years ago, we went today for lunch and it was very bad, good wasn't fresh at all, looks as if it was cooked yesterday and reheated... Salad veggies were not fresh, taste was awful, and way overpriced if you compare to quality...we are not going to go there again!!!

Just in front of the Kempinski and we would recommend Houstons above the hotel restaurant anytime! Nice friendly atmosphere - beer/wine doesnt show on the menu so you need to ask for it. the spicy chicken wings were great followed by a steak each which was cooked perfectly and a nice pepper sauce. Since there is not much else in... More

A group of friends and I went here for dinner and a couple of beers. The service was prompt & friendly, and their burgers were awesome! Once you are inside the restaurant, its just the same as being in any similar restaurant in the US - (not an easy feat to accomplish in Amman). We will definately be back to... More
